[movies]The Memory Machine: Thinking About History at the Abandoned Book Depository in Detroit - joguldi; Jo Guldi
Once we go off of the main highway where riches and information are connected, we enter the one of the past. We meet with forgotten cities and new ghost towns, where the future once looked different. In contemporary America, Detroit is the capital of this negative landscape, this new Rust Bowl, the zone where the big-government big-business vision of industrial progress is disintegrating before our eyes.

[movies]Images of Persons on Foot - Laurel Cornell, Jo Guldi
Indiana sociologist Laurel Cornell asks, why are American highways designed without regard to the concerns of the person on foot? She examines the point of view of the twentieth-century civil engineer and concludes that their training taught them how not to see the people on the roadside.

[movies]Landsploitation: Cosmology - Jo Guldi
"It has come time to talk about the very small and the very large; streetscape, townscape, highways, continents and oceans. It is time to talk about vision." "Cosmology" explores the relationships between the traveler and social gravitation, handling the connections between vision and movement in ordinary journeys. It is presented as the first episode of the LANDSPLOITATION podcast of experimental short films about landscape.

[audio]Looking at Landscapes - Jo Guldi and Simon Strikeback
In Rust Belt Tour '09, scholar Jo Guldi and activist Simon Strikeback traveled the landscape between Flint, Michigan and Holyoke, Massachusetts, documenting the foreclosures, arsons, vacant lots, anarchist squats, community gardens, and revitalization projects across eleven cities. This conversation, recorded on the road in Western Massachusetts, offers an on-the-fly introduction to the phenomenology of landscape...

[movies]River Trip - Jo Guldi
Nineteenth-century landscape painting tended towards the summary of social facts as an impression of light. "River Trip" starts where they left off: with the journey, as an attempt to penetrate the inside of another social world.

[audio]Rust Belt Tour '09: Braddock, PA and Radical Utopianism - Jo Guldi and Simon Strikeback
In 2009, the wasting steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania hit international newspapers as an example of how post-industrial ruins could be transformed into utopian spaces after the mayors' plea for dedicated urban homesteaders to relocate to Braddock's abandoned houses. Braddock left behind a model of redevelopment pursued elsewhere, a model of urban clearances and arson that required the eviction of the urban poor...

[audio]The Business Man and the Business Place - Bill Wagner
How did nineteenth-century American business travelers decide to visit Galena or Sioux Falls? How did they sort other travelers into worthwhile "business men" and deceitful "confidence men?" Berkeley historian Bill Wagner narrates how early-nineteenth century American men navigated the landscape. This short account, originally presented at the American Society for Environmental History in March 2008, forms the second episode of the Landscape Studies Podcast, available at http://landscapestudies....

[audio]Traces of Industrial History in America: First Generation and Second Generation Rust Belt - Jo Guldi and Simon Strikeback
The first, nineteenth-century industrial revolution began with mill-building along the rivers of New England in the eighteenth century. It grew to encompass a wide network of canals and rivers. The decline of early industrial towns today leaves few traces of decline, relative to the second industrial revolution. The second industrial revolution, a revolution in scale, was predicated upon the vertical and horizontal integration of steel, rail, and labor across segments of the economy...

[movies]Introduction to Landscape Studies - Jo Guldi
Intro to Landscape Studies The modern age of landscape is an age where social interactions, markets, and developments are routinely channeled by institutions invisible to the ordinary individual. State infrastructure and capital have made immense and irreversible the effects of building, in the form of corridors, monuments and waste, channeling everyday paths and interactions in new space. In the era of modern building, the secrets of landscape are constantly hidden in plain sight...

[movies]The Opposite of Development: The Landscape of government bulldozing in Chicago - Jo Guldi
Observers who grow up in the suburbs are used to seeing green lots as the emblem of a city working towards public health. It takes more than a few bicycle trips past the empty lots in south-side Chicago for the newcomer to realize that the fields, nearly five miles of them, are not a park system at all. In 1962, Chicago's Robert Taylor Homes were at the forefront of city experiments in government experiments in racial integration, housing 11,000 people on the edge of Chicago's south side...

[audio]Rust Belt Tour '09: Elmira, NY and Prison-based Urbanism - Jo Guldi and Simon Strikeback
At the close of the Civil War, the industrial hub of Elmira, NY began to pioneer a new model of economic development: they opened a reformatory. The model served them well. In the twentieth century, nineteenth-century industry collapsed around Elmira in Albany, NY and Pittsburgh, PA. Elmira, however, survived, even flourished, thanks to a constant stream of prison-based revenue. 150 years later, what does an experiment in prison-based development look like? Is it actually a healthy form of urban...

[texts]The Surprising Death of the Public Intellectual: A Manifesto for Restoration - Jo Guldi
The disappearance of the humanities from the public signals the evacuation of historical perspective from the age of expert rule. Obscurantism, publish-or-perish, and electronic publication produced a proliferation of publication coupled with the narrowing of readership. A true market of ideas tends to demonstrate growth in both sectors. Unread publications suggest academic stagflation. In other words, the humanities in America have lost their public...
